Saraya was created for the chic woman with an exquisite taste. Founded in 2011, Saraya grew from individual rings handmade by the designer herself, to a full-fledged label with limited collections for fine jewelry and fashion items. Inspired by Turkey’s rich and unique history, timeless architecture and fine craftsmanship, the founding designer was taken by her travels to Turkey and the Ottoman civilization. She first began designing single pieces of jewelry and then her passion grew to designing Jalabiyas, as she wanted to dress women in fine garments, to complement their jewelry. She travels before every collection for inspiration, sampling fabrics and stones from various markets.
